Leather trousers: friend or foe?

Leather trousers are apparently back for A/W 08. When i read this in last weeks grazia mag i immediately thought of the Friends episode where Ross is on a date and unfortunatley gets himself in a bit of a muddle. He gets himself stuck in his leather trousers, he uses everything from soap to talc to get himself outa them but nothing moves! Leather trousers though were actualy seen on lots of the catwalk shows including Alexander McQueen, Preen, Givenchy, Marc Jacobs and MaxMara. The style was anything from tight almost sprayed on pants to well structured wide leg at Marc Jacobs. This trends fits very well with the glamour goth style thats gonna be huge in A/W 08, but if you aint feeling the goth style then leather trousers will more or less go with lots of pieces in your existing wardrobe, pair them with slouchy knits for a mix of yummy fabrics or put with ruffle blouses for a punk feel (don't forget the chunky, layered necklace!)
Leather trousers have been seen on the very style gorgeous Ashley Olsen and 07-08 model Agy Deyn, you can bag yourself a pair from Topshop unique collection or M&S at bargain prices!
My favourite catwalk pair are from the Louis Vuitton catwalk a/w 08 collection.

Is this a trend you will follow or run away from?!
